FIP (FISHERY IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM)
FIPs are also an important to Maguro and we actively support them. For example, onboard our longline fishing vessels landing in Senegal, we teach local Senegalese fishermen how to catch product responsibly by showing them how to use circle hooks. After 3-months of training, they can then apply the same technique used on smaller artisanal boats. We are also working with the local development agency for fisheries in the education of observers so that more coverage can be given to our fleet as well as to others, ensuring optimal working conditions and labor rule compliance.
